This is the fourth volume of the of the Supplemental Nights of the Richard Burton Translation. This is THE translation and as the title says it is "A plain and literal translation" with many notes from an expert observer of the area. Be aware that many of the notes are quite racy and not sutible for children. Translation is a bit dated and the translators vocabulary is quite extensive from a master linguist and the work has quite comprehensive notes and comments in many languages.
